The global politics course explores fundamental political concepts such as power, equality, sustainability, and peace in a range of contexts and at a variety of levels. All standard level and higher-level students complete a common core under the central unifying theme of “people, power and politics“.
In both Year 12 and 13, students will deepen their understanding of:
- Human Rights
- Peace and Conflict
- Internal Assessment:
- Engagement activity: an engagement on a political issue of personal
- interest, complemented with research
- Higher Level Extension: research and an oral presentation on political issues in two case studies, falling under global political challenges, (environment; poverty; health; identity; borders; security)
